CCW Christmas Countdown - 53 sleeps to go

Here we go with day 2 of our Christmas Countdown at Creative Craft World. I have done a Christmas page for you and a sketch to give you a starting off point. Putting the page together is pretty self-explanatory, I think, but I’ll point out a a couple of elements. To emphasise my photo a bit I took my courage in my hands and doodled a frame and a little bit of journalling directly onto the photograph – yikes!2 Nov page Sue I’ve used a similar doodled border around the journalling and around the edge of the whole LO to help the page to hang together.

For the ‘hanging decorations’, I cut the shapes from a sheet of First Edition, New Leaf Paper Pad (available here from CCW- it’s gorgeous!). One shape is stuck down and a second folded in half and stuck to the first, along the fold. You can get the same effect with punched circles or ovals.

2 Nov sketch Please leave a link if you complete this project and come back tomorrow for Day 3 of our Countdown to Christmas.
